Smart bypass controller for VFDs

Ft. Myers, Fla.— Smart Bypass Controller minimizes harmonic distortion produced by variable frequency drives (VFDs) during peak loads, while improving VFD efficiency. The product uses a patent-pending solid-state controller to monitor system requirements of demand, speed, and load. It allows most users to meet IEEE-519, a recommended practice limiting levels of harmonic distortion impose...
